Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan will make a rare public appearance at Borders bookstore at Columbus Circle in New York City on April 27 to promote her children’s book The Sandwich Swap.
In the story, based on part of the Queen’s own personal experiences, Lily and Salma are best friends. They play together and stick together through thick and thin. But who would have ever thought that ordinary peanut butter or plain old hummus could come between them?

They understand far better than a lot of grown-ups that these things hardly matter and that friendship is the most important thing of all.
